The International Society for the Philosophy of Architecture (ISPA) is composed of an extensive international network without institutional affiliation. It does not have a single or static physical location, making its web presence its primary location and freeing the organization from the boundaries and interests of individual institutions. To facilitate the development of the growing research network, we regularly host events, circulate calls for papers, and maintain a digital research network.
The society has managed to bring together 500+ contributors since 2009. Having held its first symposium in 2010, successful conferences at Newcastle University, UK 2012, TU Delft, Netherlands 2014, and University of Bamberg, Germany 2016, ISPA has become the preeminent established organization in the field. With numerous upcoming events planned across Europe and North America, the society continues to actively engage philosophers and architects in the cultivation of architecture philosophy as a field of enquiry.
